SECRET TUNNEL WARS is another one of those archaeological programs
where an intrepid explorer (Peter Barton) and his intrepid team rake
over the past - both literally as well as academically - in search of
new historical truths.
In this case, their object of attention is the land in and around the
Somme, where the infamous battle raged during World War I. With the
help of sophisticated digging equipment, as well as equipment used at
that time (a bayonet, a kick-mining device), Barton tells the story of
the miners, both British and German, who spent much of their time
underground digging tunnels in which explosives could be placed so as
to kill as many of the opposition as possible.
Moving in confined spaces with the aid only of artificial light, Barton
showed us just how difficult the task was of digging tunnels: under the
perpetual threat of death, the miners worked on, and even when they had
finished, there was no guarantee that their efforts would produce any
advantage either for the British or the German armies.
Unlike the area above ground, the tunnels have remained intact for
nearly a century, with equipment and corpses strewn among the rubble.
The discovery of such finds might be beneficial for the archaeologists,
but we could not help but feel somewhat guilty that the past was being
excavated in such a peremptory manner. In light of the carnage that
happened during the Battle of the Somme, we wondered whether it might
not have been better to leave the past undisturbed.
The program failed to resolve this tension: on the one hand Barton
rejoiced in his finds, but on the other he tried to make us aware of
the consequences of the battle wherein scores and scores of troops were
quite literally cut down in their prime. Even the tunnels failed to
work properly, as the Germans foiled an ambitious British plan to
advance further forward and killed thousands more men in the process.
